Best Books of 2011

It's still January, so that makes it OK to post a 2011 recap.

Sometimes I get so swept up in being a writer that I forget I am also a reader. Reading is my first and true love, and it was only after lots and lots and lots of reading did I decide I wanted to be a writer. I read some books for pleasure, some for work, but every time I settle on the sofa and crack open the cover I’m hoping to find THAT BOOK. So I’d love to share with you some of the best books I read in 2011.

This is by no means comprehensive. There were so many other incredible books out there, like Lauren DeStephano’s WITHER, Stephanie Perkins’ LOLA AND THE BOY NEXT DOOR, and I could go on and on!
